South Florida is never at a loss for dining experiences. Here’s one coming in February that’s on my “must visit’’ list.
Gili’s Beach Club at Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach will offer an interactive dining experience featuring Lava Stone Grills. Guests of the casual outdoor eatery can choose from a menu of meats, vegetables and seafood, and then grill their own entrees at the table on a 700-degree volcanic lava stone. The experience will be available every Friday and Saturday from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
“Our hotel owner (influential Miami real estate developer Michael Dezer) came across Lava Stone Grills while vacationing in Aruba,” said Food & Beverage Director/Executive Chef Kurtis Jantz. “It was such a memorable experience for Michael that he wanted to bring this exciting concept to the shorelines of Sunny Isles. We’re giving our guests an excuse to ‘play with their food’ and enjoy craft cocktails in a laid-back setting overlooking the water.”
Guests will receive complimentary valet parking and make their way towards a golf cart, which transports them nearby the sands of Gili’s Beach Club. The restaurant’s staff will present diners with Lava Stone Grill and specialty cocktail menus, created by Jantz and his culinary team.
Under the main entrees, diners can select from an 8 oz. Prime Filet Mignon, 8 oz. Lobster Tail, Mixed Vegetable Grill, Jumbo Sea Scallops, 10 oz. Churrasco Skirt Steak, Marinated Colossal Shrimp, Local Catch of the Day, Organic Chicken or Angus Beef Burger.
For those with a hearty appetite, Gili’s Beach Club also will offer four entrée combinations, including surf & turf options.
Gili’s Beach Club features a patio that seats 60 people for the Lava Stone Grill dinners, as well as an assortment of specialty cocktails, a curated wine list with a selection of wines by the glass or bottle, and beer on tap.
